Marco Campenn is PhD student at the University of Rome "Tor Vergata" where he studies Artificial Intelligence applications to social phenomena. He works on AI applications in social simulations and A-Life. In cognitive science his interest is on theoretical and computational models. His current research aims at understanding how new conventions and norms emerge, innovate, and spread in social systems with (intelligent) autonomous agents.
Giulia Andrighetto Giulia Andrighetto is currently a post doc at the Laboratory on Agent Based Social Simulation, within the Institute of Cognitive Sciences and Technologies at the Italian National Research Council (ISTC-CNR). Her research activity aims to develop interdisciplinary studies in the cognitive and social fields. She is interested in applying multiagent-based social simulation and agent theory to understand social norms, their emergence, evolution and innovation in social systems with autonomous agents. She has published several scientific articles on norms representation and reasoning, and agent-based simulation.
Rosaria Conte is president of AISC, Italian Association of Cognitive Science, President of ESSA, the European Association of Social Simulation, and head of the LABSS (Laboratory of Agent Based Social Simulation) at the ISTC (Institute for Cognitive Science and Technology), and teaches Social Psychology at the Univ. of Siena. She is a cognitive and social scientist, with a special interest for the study of positive social action (altruism, cooperation and social norms), and reputation-based social regulation. Quite active in the MAS field, she contributed to launch the field of social simulation in Europe by organising amongst the main events held in the last ten years or so, editing collective volumes and coordinating a EU-funded Special Interest Group on Agent-based Social Simulation. She has been member of several European research projects and Networks of Excellence. She has published about 120 among scientific articles and books on cognitive social agents, norms representation and reasoning, and agent-based simulation. Her research interests range from Agent Theory to Multi Agent Systems, from Agent-Based Social Simulation and Cultural Evolution to Info-societies and Virtual Markets.
